This auction, for a pair of premiere tickets, is the first of several auctions of HHGG film related items to benefit these charities.
THE BBC REVIEWS THE MOVIE
The BBC has published a short review of the movie online and they love it : “t’s hard to see how this could have been better. Reserve us a table at The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe now, please.” .
FREE TICKETS AND BOOK IN THE OBSERVER THIS SUNDAY
I have been told that “In ‘The Observer’ this Sunday there will be a free copy of ‘The Restaurant at the End of The Universe’. Plus there are 10,000 free tickets to (UK) national preview screenings of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy to be won.”
WHALE CLIP ON MAXIM SITE
According to MJ Simpson, “Men’s mag Maxim has the whale monologue (introduced by Mos Def) as a video clip on its site. It’s a very heavily truncated version and I honestly can’t recall if it is that short in the film or whether part of the middle has been cut to keep this clip down to a reasonable length.” Well I can’t watch the clip, it doesn’t work for me, but it’s true that the whale speech is shorter in the movie even if I wouldn’t use the words “heavily truncated”. This is a two hours movie, so there are a lot of things in the movie which are shorter than in the books and radio series. Surprising? Not really.
